History and Accomplishments


In April 1977, fifteen Congresswomen held the first meeting of the Women’s Caucus.

Caucus Leadership


Since the beginning, the Caucus’ bipartisan spirit has been reflected in its leadership.

The Women’s Caucus

The Congressional Caucus for Women’s Issues (Women’s Caucus) is a Congressional Member Organization (CMO) registered with the House Administration Committee; its membership includes the women Members of the House of Representatives. The Women’s Caucus is not formally affiliated with the Women’s Congressional Policy Institute; however, the two organizations share similar goals.

While we are not formally affiliated with the Women’s Caucus, we achieve our mission through collaborative work with the Caucus. We facilitate bipartisan relationships and policy priorities among the women Members of Congress through events, programming, and meetings. We believe the Women’s Caucus, and its 42-year history of bipartisan work, demonstrates the possibilities for collaboration in Congress.
